Created as a solo project in '98 from the ashesof projects such as cLEAN and Synthetic Gods, ][en Michael (White Nois Stasis) articulates many styles, from ambient soundscaping to grinding ethereal industrial noize, and hybrids it with an atmosphere of madness, disgust, seclusion, and a glimmer of hope.
"The Garden of Unearthed Machines" is a thriving and addictive industrial oriented assemblage with the clean compelling rhythms and immersive atmospheric elements (such as piano, sitar and electric guitars) that make WNS stand out in the styles that have trademarked him over the last 3 years - through albums like "To Dismantle Insects" (abhnt) and "Corrosive" (liquid binary recs).
7 unmissable tracks, including a windowshattering reinterpretation by UndaCova.

This is a really great release. Something more industrial needs to sound like. If I could find more White Nois Stasis, I would be a happy man. I am suprised they haven't been picked up by Metropolis or soemthing, they are truly amazing, and need some more exposure.
I initialy heard this album about 3 or 4 years ago, at the time I loved it, than started to grow sick of it, and didn't listen to it for a while. But I've recently come back to it from a thread on an online forum where i recommended this album to some people... i said it was decent, but totaly take back that statement now. This is high grade industrial. I would say this is one of my favorite industrial albums. Hard hitting beats, that aren't the cliche BOONCE BOONCE of 'industrial' music with crappy 303 lines... no, this is really orriginal stuff.

very dynamic industrial noize
Wow, I stumbled upon this completely randomly and I must say that I am quite happy with my fate. This is some of the most diverse industrial/power noise I have ever heard. I love the atmosphere and ambiance in the first couple of track coupled with the harsh noises beats (they kind of remind me of iszoloscope when he does noize). After the initial first track or so, the album diverges on many seperates routes and into many seperate planes of sound, but it stays unified in the overall theme of industrial/noise, and I think the concept works extremely well in this case. the sound quality and production is GREAT. The variety of instruments on this album is amazing, I was surprised and a bit scared when I heard distorted guitar, but you use it in the best possible way and it definitely fits. I am so glad I found this album. I only wish that the album was longer!

This is the way industrial is supposed to sound.

Indeed, purusha is right both about the release in general and especially "I will (tr)eat you well)". A powerful, intense, atmospheric, dark release, well-crafted at an exceptional level of quality. A must-have.
